Sylvia James

Sylvia James (21).jpg

Also known as  -  Sara James, Herta Norde, Cherie Arnaud, Jante Olsen 

One of those models who appeared under a bewildering variety of names – in Sylvia’s case, at least five. As Sylvia, she was described as a nurse at an old people’s home who loved horse riding on Epsom Downs, playing cricket in a mixed eleven, the occasional visit to a disco – and modelling. Then there was Sara James and Herta Norde. And Cherie Arnaud, a French dolly from Paris. And Jante Olsen, a Norwegian lovely.

For a girl who featured in 25 ToCo mags (some of the shoots were bought for publication in other mags – Search for example) and was on the covers of six of them, there is surprisingly little information about her – no hint of her age height or vital statistics. You’ll have to connect the dots yourself.
